This is the unsigned user review that originally appeared above:
“Bob Hoskins was the unsympathetic state informant who turns in his fellow conspirators to the widely unpopular and tyrannical Tory government of Lord Liverpool in the 1820s. Staged in 1971, it was quite prescient of the right-wing Conservative government of Thatcher starting in 1979.”
